SELDEN BARNS WEDDING VENUE

THE BARN

As you approach the wedding venue down a quiet country lane, you are greeted by a collection of Sussex flint and brick buildings as well as the main farmhouse. Entering through an iron gate beside the gatehouse, the driveway takes you past the Farmhouse and across the grounds to the front entrance of the reception barn.

As soon as you enter the barn, you are hit by the “Wow Factor”. The whole room is swathed in beautiful ivory pleated marquee drapes with swags and tails. The east wall has windows overlooking the rolling fields and woodland where horses and deer roam freely, while the integrated raised dance floor and tall central pillars exude atmosphere, creating a sense of grandeur and space.

Large chandeliers hang overhead where the sparkling light shimmers against the ivory linings that drape the barn. With over 300 square meters of interior space, the barn comfortably holds the dining area, raised dance area and bar, so that your guests always feel together.

The dining area can be configured to comfortably accommodate 70 – 230 people and all tables and chairs in the barn are supplied within the venue price.

The striking raised Dance Floor with stainless steel balustrade features two mirror balls and subtle lighting. The Luxurious Drinks Bar area has a handsome vintage mahogany counter together with a huge wall unit salvaged from a Victorian chemist shop. Set your desired mood with the controllable wall and pillar up-lighters as the day turns to evening – elegant by day and magical at night.

The picturesque gardens also make the perfect setting for pre-reception drinks.

CEREMONY ROOM

Just one minute’s walk from the wedding barn, you find the beautiful old Ceremony Room, located in a converted barn adjoining the main house. Seating up to 100 people, the Ceremony Room features timber rafters under a tiled roof and our Licence for Weddings and Civil Ceremonies lets you add an additional intimate memory to your wedding.

Once you have booked the date for your wedding at Selden Barn, couples must contact the registration service directly (that’s the legal requirement!) to make registrar arrangements, while we set up the room according to your specific wishes.

Could not have wished for a more perfect day!

We had our wedding reception at the barns on Saturday 17th December and we could not have wished for a more perfect day. On the run-up, Rachel listened to what we wanted for our day and advised us on what would work on the day she pulled it all together to make it all run so well for us and all our guests. Simply brilliant thank you all! Xx

Incredible incredible incredible!!!

Incredible incredible incredible!!! We recently got married at Selden Barns on Saturday 1st December and what an amazing day!! We had SO many compliments on how amazing the venue looked and how well organised it was.

I’m a major organised freak and both Rachel and Jo made me feel so at ease (this is unusual!!) nothing was too much trouble and I felt like I could ask anything and email a million times without feeling like I was annoying them.

Selden was the first venue we saw when choosing (I think we looked at around 6 barns) and immediately I knew it was the one, we really loved that there was a completely separate ceremony room which most barns don’t have, as well as all the really reasonably priced accommodation which is incredibly handy when all the grooms family is from up North!

All the staff including the gardeners and Selden’s chef were so unbelievably friendly and made such an impression on us all, we can’t thank you all enough for making us feel like king and queen on our special day, really could not recommend you guys enough!! Xxxx
